Summary: 
In this paper, a realization of an imaginary resistor using an ideal transformer is proposed. In the same fashion as the conventional method, a signal path is divided into a real signal path and an imaginary path. We name circuits which constitute a real signal path and an imaginary signal path, a real circuit and an imaginary circuit, respectively. An imaginary resistor is converted into an ideal transformer embedded between the imaginary circuit and the real circuit. The imaginary circuit becomes a dual circuit of the real circuit. This filter consists of terminating resistors, inductors, capacitors and ideal transformers. This prototype circuit is simulated by using operational amplifiers. A 3rd-order complex Chebyshev bandpass filter is designed and its frequency response is measured. Finally, the sensitivity property of the proposed filter is evaluated by a computer simulation.
